Out of curiosity :) We probably have a diverse group of people?

I'll start: I'm a graduate student in CS.

"Jack of all trades (master of none?)" in a business office.  Small enough company that I can have my hands in a lot of areas... product planning, events, design, etc... never boring.  I actually enjoy it.

Microstock a well-paying hobby, working on it a few hours at night... at least for now.

Erlier I worked as a roofer in my own small company.  Microstock woke up my interest for photography, and got me to start with 3d.  And now after 2-3 years Im a wellpaid 3d artist on a big company.    Thanks for the inspiration:)

In my previous life I had my own graphic design company for about 10 years. Burned out, now I shoot when I can and spend most of my time being a mom.

Retired:

and all the time (still) making a few bucks with my photography from motorsports action and travel (nature/wildlife) and microstock.

That's a lot of stuff but I have been around for a long time.   ;D

This sounds very nice, the "never boring" part is fantastic. Repetitive work is often what brings people down in the long run. I keep hoping to experiment with different 'trades' at some point in my life.

I was doing microstock full-time, but then I burned out a couple of years ago and reinvented myself as an antique dealer/photographer.

Well I was earning extra income from doing paperwork for the buisness my boyfriend was trying to acquire but that fell through so now micro is my only income.  I'm also a stay at home mom but the pay sucks ;D

My kids paid me in kisses and hugs (and a lot of snotty noses) when I stayed at home last year. ;)

Unfortunately, it's my husbands turn to work from home now, so I'm back to teaching.

Your stay at home pay was better than mine.  They pay me in tantrums and arguing with each other ;)

I just had to modify my post to add in the "work-from-home dad" part. Wow, what does that say about my priorities? :)

Guess I'm just still getting used to that part of my job title. Only been on the job for 4 months.
